20-30cm of fresh snow this morning folks and a good start to the holidays. For those who don't know, today is a national holiday in Japan and of course we have the weekend coming up so it should be the first busy weekend of the season.

The snow has allowed the resort to open up more lifts and terrain - the Freeride Park, Kids Park and Zipline features are should be open as well. I say should because right now they are still being 'prepared' but the resort plans to have these things open today.

Right now there's not much to actually see though as the snow is still coming down and the mountain is shrouded in cloud.

Snow conditions are good though so for those getting out should be in for a treat. Remember we have heavy snow due all through the weekend so you need to be prepared for that. Hopefully strong winds won't cause too much havoc with lift operations.

Lifts currently operating:
Number 1 lift
Number 2 quad lift
No 3 A
No 5
Super Quad lift
No 11
No 12
No 14
Moving walkway
Kids Park
Freeride Park
(subject to change depending on conditions)
